Having "mild" COVID is less fun than people make it out to be.

Do I know anyone (*cough* @GeoffWozniak *cough*) who'd be interested in, or know someone interested in, any of the volumes below? The book without a visible title is the 1997 Canadian Global Almanac; the rest are about computer languages, software, theory, and methodologies.

Redactle #44 

I don't always post my Redactle results, but when I do they look like this. (Could even have had fewer guesses and better accuracy if I'd trusted my gut.)

I solved today's Redactle (#44) in 6 guesses with an accuracy of 83.33%. Played at redactle.com/

Apparently I'm much better than average at Redactle. Not sure if that's good or bad. 

I solved today's Redactle (#22) in 52 guesses with an accuracy of 63.46%. Played at redactle.com/

Fighting with an otherwise-promising-looking IndieWeb feed reader/[micro]blogging platform that's almost diametrically opposed to twelve-factor app principles.

If you can see this my Mastodon instance is running (again, after an XFS disaster).

Pro tip for Android users: install the "Shortcut Maker" app and you can create a quick link to your vaccination record. (I copied the QR code out of the vaccination record to make it even easier; the icon opens it immediately in Photos.) play.google.com/store/apps/det

I believe iPhone users can do the same by creating a shortcut and adding it to the home screen. support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/ support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/

Joke's on the "Join the Illuminati" spammers: I'm already in. 👁
